Dear Miss Dix: We are always , being told about it being the duty I of mothers to train their daughters ,' lo be good wive;.:. Inasmuch as 1 marriage is a fifty-filly proposi- j tion, why isn't it Hie duty of fathers to prepare their sons to be good husbands.' Yet nobody pipes about that. After all it takes two people to make a marriage a success. Neither one can do it alone and ! unaided. It is a two-handed job. I So why don't parents feel that i they should train their sons for I marriage as well as their daughters? A READER Answer: Apparently parents are sold to the belief that a knowledge of how lo be a good husband comes by Nature, as Dogberry thought reading and writing did. and thai, there isn't any necessity for wasting any time and effort in teaching a boy how to get along with his bride. Mothers don't prepare their sons to be good husbands, ior they think their Sams and Johnnys are too good for any girl, anyway. And fathers don't bother lo train their sons for matrimony, so the average man goes into marriage with only a few muddled ideas about how to be a good husband. Now, of course, marriage being the complicated business it is, there should be a School for Training Husbands , that every boy should attend, and all of the teachers should be women, for only' women know what it takes to make wives happy and they alone could train men along the lines that make a husband a gift from God. Want Perpetual Lover A man. for instance, thinks he is a good husband if he is a good provider and if he works his fingers to thc bone to give his wife every luxury and comfort. But a wife's idea of a perfect husband is one who is a combination kissing- bug and salve-spreader who never ceases telling her how beautiful and wonderful she is, and how he adores her, and who takes her stepping every Saturday night. Let a man keep his wife jollied up and he has filled a woman's ideal oC a perfect husband. Dear Miss Dix: I am a young veteran and am finding it hard to get some employment that will keep me interested. I have had a number of various good jobs that wen: well-paying, but none that I cared for. They included being a lumber hauler, a truck driver, construction helper, restaurant manager, bar and grill owner, and I have applied for a license to be a bodyguard but all of these have bored me. 1 want something that will keep me on my toes, but I have not found it. Can you advise me as to whether I should stick to what I am doing, or seek something thai will give rne a more satisfied feeling. JOHN Answer: It seems to me, John, that your trouble is that you have never kept to one thing long enough to g-it interested in it. You have never had any real purpose in your employment. You have gone into it with thc if-I-don;t-Ukc ihis-I-won't-stick it spirit, and that, kind of an attitude never makes a man succeed at anything. It is only after you dig into anything with teeth and tocnail. determined to make a go of it or die in the attempt, that you really get to enjoy your work. My earnest advice to you is to go to some man who has made a special study of vocational yuid- '•nec and get him to try to "find out what special aptitudes and talents you possess. Then go to it, and hang on to it until you make a success o£ it. Dear Dorothv Dix: Please tell me how long it will take my husband to learn how to read and write. He is -HI years old.

The invective was hurled in a denunciation of the wartime allied commander's book. "Crusade in Europe." The reviewer, V. Daniicys!u, asserted Eisenhower "piles one boulder of lies onto another trying to scramble up to a peak' of. new herculean heights." "The people of the world never will Hornet how. wilh the blessing of Churchill. Eisenhower 'hurried slowly' at thc same time as Soviet armies in the east were crushing and destroying the German armies," the reviewer asserted.
